Priyanka Chopra: ‘No one wakes up red carpet ready!’

Priyanka Chopra hates it when people suggest they “woke up like this”.

The Quantico star rarely looks anything but picture-perfect when she poses for photographers on the red carpet.

But in a new interview with W magazine, the 35-year-old actress, who stunned at the recent royal wedding in a lavender Vivienne Westwood suit and a sparkly Dior dress, opened up about just how much work goes into making her look so flawless.


Asked what beauty myth she’d most like to debunk, Priyanka vented: “No one ‘woke up like this.’ It takes an army of people to get us ready for an event or red carpet.”

When it comes to getting herself ready on a daily basis, the actress has a much simpler routine – which starts with washing her hair. And starting out with clean, well-behaved tresses always gives her a boost.

“There’s nothing better than a good hair day,” she smiled. “A good hair day makes you feel attractive, which fuels your confidence and sets you up for success.”

As well as citing Pantene’s new Micellar Shampoo and Conditioner as among her favourite hair products, Priyanka deep conditions her locks on a weekly basis to make them softer and easier to manage.

It’s not just her hair that is the envy of women worldwide – the stunning brunette always has a flawless complexion too. While her job requires her to wear a full face of make-up most days, Priyanka enjoys going fresh-faced whenever possible. However, one thing she can rely on to give herself a boost is a slick of red lipstick.

Asked to name the most underrated beauty product, she replied: “A red lipstick! It’s still a staple in my make-up bag, and a must have for me.”
